I recently upgraded from a very old version of mythtv ( both OS and
mythtv ) and now have a stutter only on play back of live tv.
When I play live tv, the playback is not smooth until I pause and then
un-pause the video. From what I can tell the buffer is at 0% when this
happens, until I pause the frontend. Thus allowing the backend to get
ahead of the playback.
As a test, I have added a 2s delay before the frontend starts play back
which completely resolves the issue (buffer at ~10%+). I hooked it in
to the disable screensaver code (screensaver-x11.cpp), I'm looking for
a "better" place to put the delay, as it only needs to be delayed on the
playback of livetv and not every time the screensaver is disabled.
Is there any setting I am missing that would eliminate the need to do
this? Maybe a hidden tune-able somewhere? If not, any suggestions on
the best place to insert a delay when starting just live TV?
This was a lons-standing issue that was thought to be fixed here
This might be in master only not fixes/29.
